Laguna Art Museum's Annual Fall Event
On September 26, 2020, Laguna Art Museum will host its annual fall event. Supporting the museum’s far-reaching art education and exhibition programs, LAM’s Gala promises performances, art, prizes, awards, and more. Emcee Jason Feddy and his band, Mad Dogs & The Englishman, add to the excitement of the evening, with a celebration for community guests supporting the museum.

A passionate ocean conservationist, Greg and his wife Barbara founded the One World One Ocean Foundation, a non-profit public charity dedicated to educating and inspiring the public through giant-screen films and companion programming about the need to take action to protect the world’s ocean.
